    I do have a favourite soap, it would be Coronation Street.
    Maureen Lipman appeared in one years ago called Agony playing an Agony Aunt.
    There was also an American one called Soap.
    We in the UK also had Brookside

      Not a fan of soap operas, I remember watching the first episode of East Enders and thinking, “what a load of c**p!” Never watched any more of it. I started to get into El Dorado then they took it off.

      The only time I even watched a full episode of any soap opera was the first episode of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.  Mostly because of the previews, where the she served an overtired coach some chicken soup, and he fell asleep and died in the bowl of chicken soup.  Although others in my family watched the comedy Soap, I had no interest.  My siblings also used to watch Dark Shadows, about a vampire.  Again, I had no interest.  I couldn’t even tell you who shot J.R.

      Being from the other side of the pond I got hooked on All My Children for the 1st year it was on and the start of Susan Lucci’s career. Only others I watched regularly were Soap and Mary Hartman Mary Hartman each with their own charm.

      I’ve never heard of those Chloe.

      I do chuckle at Neighbours – they’ve managed, against all odds and statistics, to cram a gay couple, a lesbian, a bi girl and a post-op trans woman into a regular cast of about 20 actors, and the occasional extra gay/bi character pops in too.

      They even managed to write Courtney Act into the show a while back.

      Great fun

      Dear Elizabeth ,

      No particular role model for me here , but I did like
      Georgina ( Lesley-Anne Down ).
      She also played in North and South , about the American Cival War.
      All these beautiful ladies in those magnificant gowns from the eighteenhundredths.

      Love Sylvia.

      Dear Elizabeth ,

      My favourite UK soap was “Upstairs Downstairs” , it was called
      “The Bellamy Family” here in the Netherlands.
      Maybe it wasn’t a real soap but I liked it very much.

      Love Sylvia.

      Yes Upstairs Downstairs’  would I believe technically come under that heading. What female character would you like to be? Do you think it would be Rose, or  Daisy or Mrs Bridges ,or Lady Agnes or Lady Prudence or someone else?

      Hi…

      I dont watch ANY soaps at all anymore, not for over ten years now……EastEnders was so depressing, it drove the love of fhem right out of me.

      I gave up on soaps so I have no favourite as I do not watch them. I did however enjoy the American sitcom ‘Soap’ about the Tates and Campbells which ran in the late 70’s – That was funny but Brit soaps are not my cup of tea – even with a dunk of Neighbours….

      Oh Angela, I loved that program Soap, it was whacky and of the wall.

        Wendy hope you don’t mind when I was referring to Soaps, I wasn’t something to wash with, it’s a television soap series. Hope you’re not offended.

      Hi Elizabeth!   Well, I have heard of Eastenders, and have watched Coronation Street at times ( who hasn’t? Lol ), though I will say I’m not a huge fan of soaps.

      Growing up – long, long ago – I do remember my mom watching All My Children.
